JENNIFER, THE TWO-HEADED COW


Meet Jennifer, a cow born with two heads but only one brain. Her head is so heavy, she can't stand up without help. Farmer Marino Cabrera built a hammock support to help her stand.

Jenifer was born last Friday at a farm in Rivera, 150 miles from Bogota.

Farmer Marino Cabrera, claims he has never seen anything like it in 30 years as a cattle breeder.

The calf's four-year-old mother had already gave birth to a normal and healthy calf.

"She's a very cute thing, beautiful, I see her as a pretty thing that God sent, he sent her as she is," Rosario Leyva, the wife of the farm's caretaker, told local television reporters.

The condition, known as Polycephaly, is incredibly rare, but can occur in both animals and humans.

Wow. Poor cow. This is definitely something you don't see every day.

I know, Keith. It's a fascinating but very sad story.
